Happy June and Happy Friday everyone!
What’s been going on with me:
Wow it’s been a while since I did a This & That Friday post…and a bit since I posted regularly. The last few weeks have been a little mad around here. I was completing a course and purging and organizing my house for an upcoming garage sale and then we headed out on a one week vacation to Mexico to celebrate our anniversary. I had fully planned on doing up some posts while on vacation but the internet was spotty and I got frustrated and gave up on that idea. Which actually wasn’t a bad thing! I checked Instagram and Twitter once in a while but for the most part I spent a lot of time reading books and just relaxing. The problem being that when I got back I had lost my motivation to blog. Does that ever happen to you? Despite being really behind on posts, I just had no desire to sit down and type up anything. Thankfully I seem to have cleared that hump now and I’m looking forward to getting back into it! Note that I’ve changed up the format of my This & That Fridays posts – let me know how you like it!
As mentioned above, I was completing a course back in May that was keeping me pretty busy; in line with my 2016 Goals, I registered for and completed a course in Graphic Design. It was a lot more work than I expected but I absolutely loved it! I plan on continuing on with the program and I will potentially have an exciting related update later on this year so stay-tuned!
Have you seen this?
Apple’s Cookie Monster commercial? 🙂 Love it! If so, then you need to watch the bloopers. Cookie Monster was always my favourite Sesame Street character.
A collection of 25 No-Bake Peanut Butter Desserts…those Kitkat Crunch Bars are just calling my name. You’re welcome!
Did you hear?
That Victoria Secret is discontinuing their swimwear line? I seriously wanted to throw an adult temper tantrum when I heard this – WHY??? WHY??? Apparently they’re not making enough money off of it. I mean, their quality could sometimes be hit and miss, but I’d be willing to pay a little more if it mean they’d keep it around. VS is my go-to for swimwear as they typically have cute styles for a reasonable price so I’m sort of at a loss of where I’ll shop for swimwear going forward. On the bright side I picked up a new top and bottoms for pretty cheap a few weeks ago as they were clearing out their stock. Sad! 😦
What I’ve bought recently:
Gap Print Halter Romper – I brought this with me to Mexico and it was so comfy and so cute! Very easy to dress up or down, based on the shoes and accessories.
Tarte Eyelash Curler – I needed a new eyelash curler and it was a toss-up between this one and Shu Umera’s version. I ended up going with this one and I’m so glad I did. I used one of these years ago and I forgot how much I love it! I have a bad habit of pinching my eyelids with my eyelash curler and this eliminates that completely. Plus it’s so comfortable in my hand and it fits my eye shape perfectly.
IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream – 2 months after purchase I finally received my order of this CC cream from the Shopping Channel (don’t get me started…) and I hate to say it, but it was worth the wait! It’s been the only thing I’ve used on my face for the last 2 weeks and I don’t really care to use anything else right now. I’ll be doing a full review on this in a bit so keep an eye out for it!
What I’m currently coveting:
Gap Linen Surf Shorts – I’ve been having a lot of success at Gap lately and I really like these cozy shorts in Palm Springs Pink.
Glo Brilliant Teeth Whitening Device – I really want something to whiten my teeth – the problem being my teeth are SUPER sensitive with little enamel left on them, so I can’t use simple things like whitening toothpaste or strips. I hate the price of this but all the reviews say it works with little to no sensitivity. If you have any other suggestions please share below!
Ikea Falkhojden Desk: I’m looking for a desk for my office and I’ve fallen in like with this one – but I hate that it has zero storage, even with the add-on unit. Also considering the Kimpen/Lalle.
That’s it for this week – have a great weekend!
